Sandy’s wrath left some Colorado high school students stranded in New York City.
Two area high schools competed in an international mock trial competition that ended Sunday.
But while the competition is over, the Big Apple isn’t done with them yet.
The monster storm shut down the flights for seven students and three chaperones from Rock Canyon High School in Highlands Ranch and nine students and two chaperones from Glenwood Springs High on the Western Slope.
They can talk a good game.
They even walked away with trophies.
But their words proved powerless against a superstorm of historic proportions.
“We were supposed to come home yesterday (Monday) afternoon. Now, all the airports are closed. We hope to get out by early Thursday morning,” says Glenwood Springs student Andrew Schied during a group interview on Skype.
